Now that we know we’re having a boy, we wanted to share a little more about him with all of you. We are excited to announce that we are leaning towards the name “Max Aidan” for our little boy.
“Max” comes from Sean’s beloved grandfather Max (Vinnie’s Dad), who was a huge part of his life growing up. Sean has always known that he would name his first son “Max”…he even told me this when we first started dating! We think that it’s a strong, creative name….and it’s been made famous by the wonderful children’s book ‘Where The Wild Things Are’. “Aidan” follows the Jewish tradition of using the letter of the first name of a loved one who has passed. “Aidan” is for Kim’s amazing Baubee (Ann, Barbara’s mom, who was creative, full of energy and a sense of humor, and had a beautiful singing voice) and two of Sean’s Great-Grandmothers (both Anna). Max’s initials will be MAS, which (Disclaimer: this may be TMI) stands for Massachussetts, where we took our beautiful vacation in Boston and Nantucket, and where we conceived little Max.
So please join us in trying out the name “Max”. We’ll be practicing here on this blog, and in real life, and slowly the reality of welcoming our little boy into this world will take shape. We may still use Tucker every once in a while, but for now, WELCOME TO MAX’S BLOG!!!!
